Three Sheridan artists are featured in a ceramics show that will run through Jan. 7 at SAGE in downtown Sheridan.
“FUMING: Soda Fired Ceramics” showcases the work of Elaine Olafson Henry, Rod Dugal and Stephen Mullins.
The show is open to the public, and a Livestream presentation on the SAGE Community Arts YouTube page will be shown at 6 p.m. Nov. 12. Soda firing is a process in which soda ash and baking soda are introduced to the flame when the kiln is nearly at its hottest, resulting in ceramics in a variety of colors and textures.
The three artists will talk about their artist processes and inspiration in the Nov. 12 Livestream Artist Talk. A recording of the talk will also be available to view any time after the event.
